  • Vidya Vihar's student Rivam Raj (12th in 2019) brightened the name of Vidya Vihar across the world.



He was born in the French country village of Ramerupt, in the Aube département of northern France to Meir ben Shmuel and Yocheved, the daughter of Rashi. He was the grandson of Rashi, and brother of the Rashbam and the Rabbeinu Tam. He died before his father, leaving four children.[1]

Although he died young, the Rivam contributed to Tosafot, mentioned by Eliezer ben Joel HaLevi,[2] to several tractates of the Talmud. He is often quoted in the edited Tosafot.[3]
